Negotiation Update (07/15/2015)

Your negotiation team has had four days of bargaining. We are yet to receive management’s proposal on health insurance. We are also waiting for responses and information on several significant issues on the table.

Fair market wages and the proposed change in overtime are still a huge challenge.

We have an extension for our contract through August 31, 2015 and we are working on setting our next negotiation date.

Thanks for all of your support and unity during these negotiations. Please watch your mail and email closely for further actions.

Negotiation Update – Local Unit Meeting (06/04/2015)

  • Your negotiation team has had two days of bargaining. We are yet to receive management’s full proposal. We are still waiting on proposals from management for hours of work and overtime, PTO/EIB, unpaid leaves of absence, and insurance programs.
  • Fair market wages are going to be a huge challenge. The time has come to respect home health care nurses and catch up your below market wages!

Please Join us for a local unit meeting to discuss negotiations and future actions:
